work in shetland


Recommended Posts

I cannot be bothered to copy and paste this so read it here http://www.shetlink.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=206914#206914. And if you think Shetland is for you then get booked on the boat and look for a job once you get here. A camper van is OK in the summer and you should be able to find a winter let of a holiday property once the summer has gone. Do not be bothered by negative comments about incomers. They mainly relate to incomers who want to come here and milk the system. Plenty of people have come here to start a new life and have never looked back.

funny my memory must be playing tricks a lot of the court reports that make the paper are good Shetland names. yes there are a few drink related problems among some of the eastern Europeans but equally there are just as many drunk violent Shetlanders. please just come with an open mind and you can make it up here.

for example

Shetland Times 27th April 1889


At the Sheriff Court on Wednesday – before hon. Sheriff-Substitute Mitchell – Marion

Halcrow, Cunningsburgh, was charged with failing to provide elementary education for her

son, Simon Halcrow, aged 13 years, whereby she had contravened the Education (Scotland)

Acts 1872 to 1883. Magnus Smith, Cunningsburgh, was also charged with a similar offence,

he having failed to provide elementary education for his children, aged 9 and 12 years

respectively. Both plead not guilty, but the charges were established by the evidence

produced, and in both cases attendance orders were pronounced.

I was going to say OP's attitude towards immigrants would be out of place and relatively unwelcome in Shetland, but some comments are making me worry I may have been wrong. Goes against all the values I was brought up with as a Shetlander.


I see one first generation immigrant on crofter's list, not "at least two". I know him, as well, and can say despite a few drink related problems he's definitely not freeloading.

How can you possibly print this list and not have it removed by the puppets?.. Oh, I see. You didn't ask for correct pronunciation of any of them.

Such a hanus crime!

^^ Hold on a minute there my friend.. What about calamity?


No holds barred there now, is there?


The difference, I think, is that the Calamity thread was already pages long well before he got anywhere near a courthouse, coupled with the fact that the whole point of calamities court appearance was publicity, makes him fair game.

T & Cs aside, a bit more midder wit as to what is appropriate to discuss on a public forum, respect for the mods (who let's not forget, do their job on a voluntary basis) and a lesson in online etiquette wouldn't go amiss northern.


Time was that this forum was a good place to debate the issues of the day in a grown up, adult like manner. Of late, more threads than ever seem to end up descending into the same rabble of sharn thanks usually to the same handful of regulars. It really is no wonder many of us rarely contribute nowadays.
